The House of Trade is located on 'Sluizeken' or Water Lock. The water lock blocked traders to get into the city with their carriages so the small square would host the horse and carriages of traders. The traders would then continue with smaller carriages to the center to sell their crops and crafts. Horses would have the shade of the trees and a drinking fountain.
There is always a buzz around city centers and this is still showing today. The street ending in the square is a food hub with a wide offering of international cuisines.
LOW EMISSION ZONE
Since 2020, Ghent is located in a Low Emission Zone. This means that older cars with high emissions are banned from the city centre in order to improve the air quality in the city. Check here whether your car meets the standards.
- Underground parking Vrijdagmarkt is around the corner and costs around 24 euros for 24 hours
- You can park in the streets but make sure you choose an orange zone (6 euros per 24hours) as the red zone will cost much more (10 euros per 3 hours)
- There are also several Park & Ride parkings around the city where you can leave your car for a very small fee or free and take public transportation into the city
